A free CD illustrating design considerations and pitfalls in the fabrication of coating systems and components includes three presentations covering different components of a turnkey coating system. The CD, from KMI Systems Inc., Crystal Lake, IL, is designed to inform manufacturers of the potential problems related to installation of paint finishing and coating systems.
The first presentation covers cleaning and pretreatment machines, with photos illustrating common design problems and how to prevent them. The second presentation reviews a variety of e-coat systems and key components. The third describes a range of ovens and curing systems, including batch-type, infrared and combination infrared/ convection ovens. Com-ponents such as heaters, cooling tunnels and exhaust systems are described with an emphasis on fabrication and installation. The presentation compares the features and benefits of oven types and offers an overview on how to prevent common pitfalls while ensuring maximum system efficiency.
